You can keep the music going for generations to come!

As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on donations of all sizes from people like you to sustain our programming. This holiday season, we hope you will consider making a gift to the Whatcom Symphony Orchestra to help us further our mission to perform music of all ages to audiences of all ages throughout Whatcom County.

Ways to give:

~ Give online at

~ Attending an upcoming concert? Place a donation in the remit envelope enclosed in your concert program and drop the envelope in the mail.

~ Make a planned gift: Support the Symphony for generations to come and make philanthropic giving a lifelong commitment. Planned gifts include a bequest in a will or trust, a beneficiary designation from retirement or life insurance accounts, appreciated assets, and real estate or personal property gifts. Financial incentives may apply. For more information about planned giving and our Legacy Society, please contact the Symphony Office.

~ Make an Honor or Memorial gift: Honor a loved one or respected colleague with a thoughtful gift while helping to bring the gift of music to our community.
~ Chair Underwriting: Chair Underwriters are instrumental in sustaining the organization, making an initial 3-year commitment to honor a member of the orchestra.

~ Make a gift of stock: Donating stock may enable you to increase your gift to the Symphony while realizing added tax benefits. Check with your broker or tax advisor to determine if a stock donation makes sense for you.

~ Make a gift from your IRA Charitable Rollover: If you are 70 1/2 years or older and required to take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), you can directly transfer all or part of your RMD from your IRA retirement as a gift to the Symphony (up to $100,000 annually) with no taxable income on the transfer.

Interested in giving? We’ll help you take it from there!
